Demonstration by Freda Anderson 3.4.13

The demonstration by Freda Anderson was enjoyed by many members of the Virginia Water Art Society on Wednesday evening.  Due to time constraints many Artists come with pre drawn compositions however Freda shared with us this evening her thoughts and processes involved when she set out and composed her drawing sketch on the spot which was very interesting and informative.  Freda then went on to paint using water colours constantly referring to the still life that she had set up and the sketch which she had just completed.  Our new camera equipment enable the audience to view of Freda's work showing brush strokes and techniques in close up views which greatly improved the experience of watching live demonstrations

All Day Workshop with Sera Knight 16.3.13

Sera Knight's Workshop watercolour street scene with people was greatly enjoyed. Sera first demonstrated painting a busy street with lots of people and traffic, we then attempted our own version thanks to Alan Mar and his neighbour  who photocopied several photos for the group to use as a reference. Sara then helped us individually as we progressed with our own painting. We learned a lot  throughout the day and all enjoyed the process very much.
